The Chemnitz (WKC) combination technology plant, which is part of Siemens’ digital industry, has been developing and manufacturing electrical equipment and electronic assemblies for mechanical and plant engineering for more than 60 years. The range of services ranges from order assembly according to customer documents to system partnership. For several years, WKC has relied on the digital exchange of information with customers and suppliers as well as in internal processes. Manufacturing Engineering, which is upstream of production, transforms all customer-specific information and technical rules into a so-called “Digital Twin” (DT).
This is then available to the respective production areas. These include, for example, material logistics, mechanical prefabrication (cutouts, drillings), line assembly as well as electrical assembly, wiring and testing. This procedure enables the realization of individual customer projects with short turnaround times with high quality and cost efficiency. Plant manufacturers have the choice between an immediately available and ready-to-connect control cabinet basic variant for their robotic systems, a pre-designed solution with additional options or a completely customer-specific application.
